Set in the 16th century, before the coming of the colonialists, an impending war looms over the flourishing Igala Kingdom from the mighty Bini Kingdom led by Oba Esigie. To avert this war, King Attah Ayegba of Igala Kingdom consults the oracle to know the mind of the gods. When the Oracle informs the King of the human sacrifice demanded by the gods, the king plunges into despair; haunted by the ghosts of his past, this is a sacrifice he is not prepared to give. The Legend of Inikpi tells the story of two ancient kingdoms in West African history where traditions and culture run deep and where the gods through their oracles decide the fate of nations of people. Who will save the Igala kingdom? Will the egos of two great kings be controlled? Will victory come from war and the death of tens of thousands? Or will the life of the innocent beloved princess Inikpi be indispensable to the gods of war?
